Merricks North house a rare listing in Mornington Peninsula pocket
This resort-style haven is sure to make a splash as a rare listing in a Mornington Peninsula pocket where only a couple of homes have sold this year.
RT Edgar Flinders agent Paul Armstrong said the Merricks North house remained contemporary after being constructed by a “very good local builder” as his own home two decades ago.
“It’s very well designed and very private, with a beautiful garden,” he said.

The current owners — who CoreLogic records show paid $1.8 million for 66 Tubbarubba Rd about eight years ago — are now set to auction it on October 27.
They have $3.65-$4 million price hopes.
Set on 2.23ha, and at the end of a long tree-lined driveway, the four-bedroom house boasts a northerly orientation and seamless indoor-outdoor living.
The grounds feature alfresco decks, a tennis court, a saltwater and solar-heated pool, and farming infrastructure including stables, a tack and feed room, fenced paddocks and shedding.
Scarcity is another selling point — just two houses sold in Merricks North in the year to June 30, the latest CoreLogic figures show.
The suburb also had just four listings on realestate.com.au at September 26, one of which was under offer.
